#3 Twitter Account for Teachers
@NCTM (16,500+ followers) The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics is a public voice of mathematics education, providing vision, leadership and professional development to support Reston, Virginia · http://www.NCTM.org
We selected the @NCTM for the following reasons:
The National Council for the Teachers of Mathematics is perhaps the best resource for math teachers of all levels. There is so much information and so many useful tools for math teachers that you will need several days to process all the material.
The website is incredibly organized. There are resources for different grade levels and groups including Elementary School, Middle School, High School, Higher Ed, Leaders, and Families. Whatever category applies to you, I am sure you will find what you need.
The mission of the organization is:
“The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics is a public voice of mathematics education supporting teachers to ensure equitable mathematics learning of the highest quality for all students through vision, leadership, professional development and research.”
The webpage also has many other great sections including:
- Standards and Focal Points
- Curriculum Focal Points
- Lessons and Resources (Elementary, Middle School, High School)
- Professional Development
- Journals and Books
- Research, News, and Advocacy
- Shop Online
Math teachers also are in high demand for tutoring. @NCTM members are the best tutors in America. If a parent needs tutoring for math there are so many great instructors who are members of @NCTM.
If you are a @NCTM member and you tutor, check our our website www.mytowntutors.com. We would love to help you connect with parents to make good money.
The registration process is simple and takes less than 5 minutes. If you are a teacher, please share www.mytowntutors.com with other parents and teachers.
My Town Tutors also hopes to be a great resource for math teachers who tutor. Our goal is to make it easy for parents to find local math teachers who tutor. If you are a math tutor, please visit our site to see how we might be able to help you make $5,000 tutoring during the upcoming school year.
